The Feast

The Feast

(1999)
(The second book in the Ulster series)
A novel by

 
Acclaimed historian and storyteller Randy Lee Eickhoff continues for modern readers the saga he began with The Raid, revealing more of the incredible feats of Cuchulainn, the boy warrior. If The Raid is Ireland's Iliad, then The Feast is its Odyssey. Eickhoff's bold retelling conveys the lyricism and passion of Ireland's ancient inhabitants. These stories were passed down through a rich oral tradition beginning in the eighth century B.C. until they could be written down by medieval monks on illuminated manuscripts in the seventh century A.D.

The Feast is a modern translation of Fled Bricriu, one of Ireland's most thrilling and humorous legends. Three men, each striving to be named Champion of Conchobor's realm, enter into a battle of wits and swords in an effort to enjoy the privileges accorded to the national champion. As the heroic competition unfolds, visits to and from the otherworld threaten to unmask the true nature of the gathering. And at the center remains Bricriu, god of mischief and creator of the most delicious and devilish banquet the world has ever seen.
